Will County Personal Injury Lawyer

Suffering serious injuries in an accident causes a major disruption in your life. Often, accident victims miss weeks or months of work, they are unable to participate in the activities they used to enjoy, and, on top of everything else, face tremendous medical bills—all for an accident they didn’t cause. We don’t think it’s up to you to bear the brunt of the financial costs of another’s negligence.

At the Fotopoulos Law Office, we handle a wide range of Will County personal injury cases on behalf of accident victims and their families, including cases involving:

  • Car Accidents,
  • Construction accidents,
  • Dangerous and defective products,
  • Medical malpractice,
  • Motorcycle wrecks,
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect,
  • Pedestrian and bicycle accidents,
  • Truck crashes,
  • Workplace injuries, and
  • Wrongful death.

After an accident, it’s completely normal to get overwhelmed by the thought of pursuing a personal injury case. However, having the assistance of an experienced Will County personal injury lawyer makes the process much easier on you and your family. At the Fotopoulos Law Office, we handle every aspect of your case, allowing you to focus on your recovery while we pursue maximum compensation for what you’ve been through.

Civil and Family Law Mediation and Arbitration in Will County

Arbitration and mediation are two alternative ways to resolve legal claims without the need for a trial. Arbitration and mediation are similar in that they both involve both sides of a dispute presenting their case to a neutral third party. However, arbitration results in a decision that binds the parties, whereas mediators merely attempt to come up with workable solutions that the parties are free to reject.

Both arbitration and mediation are efficient ways to resolve many cases that can save both sides time, money, and effort. However, it is important to have an experienced negotiator representing you throughout these proceedings. Attorney Fotopoulos relies on the skills he developed as a Cook County Circuit Court judge to help his clients obtain the result they are looking for in difficult family law and civil cases.
